Manufacturing Management I
The purpose of this paper is to explore why, in spite of its popularity, many MRP system implementations are unsuccessful. In order to illustrate my points, I examine two companies and review the results. These companies offer a good representation of problems other companies may have experienced, and that one can relate the companies' successes and failures, at least in some measure, to the success or failure of their MRP implementation.
